Emergency Dispatch

911, What is your emergency?  A career as a 911 dispatcher is fast-paced, full of variety, and above all else, rewarding.  Are you looking for a career where you will be helping people in emergency situations and will be a valuable resource to your community?  Do you thrive on multitasking, listening and problem-solving, and working as part of a team?  Do you tend to be curious and need daily challenges to keep you stimulated?  Emergency dispatch might be the program for you.

As a part of a chain of emergency responders, dispatchers are the face—or the ear—of emergency calls to 911. It takes a remarkable person to do a dispatcher’s work.  As the first point of contact in emergency situations, a dispatcher plays the incredibly important role of gathering information and caring for people until help arrives.  They are also the eyes and ears for the responders arriving at the scene and help to prepare police, fire, and EMTs for what awaits them.

This 300-hour program will give you the essentials of dispatch including NIMS 100, 200,700, and 800 certifications and the APCO Public Safety Telecommunicator Level 1 Certification.  Get a jump start on an incredibly rewarding career where you can take pride in what you do and make a difference in your community.  Class size limited to 10 students.
